About Patti

I’m happily wearing my mom’s “revised” 65-year-old wedding dress.

I am a college teacher, tutor program coordinator, kidney donor, and dumpster diver / recycler extraordinaire.  I like to think I put the “shabby” in “shabby chic” . . . I love to turn junk into something cool.

My stories, poems, and essays have appeared in Salon Magazine, Women’s Studies Quarterly, Journal of Developmental Education, The Wisconsin Academy Review, The Southwest Review, HipMama, Inside HigherEd, as well as other magazines and anthologies.  I am the co-author (with Bruce Taylor) of Higher Learning: Reading and Writing About College 3rd edition (Pearson/Prentice Hall, 2011)  and a poetry collection, Love’s Bluff (Plainview Press, 2006).

I live on a small oxbow lake in Wisconsin with my husband, a retired English professor who is also a writer.
